GlobalFest

Fri Aug 21 - Sat Aug 29

GlobalFest is "Alberta’s Most Explosive Festival!"

Every Year in August, GlobalFest celebrates Calgary’s multicultural communities and showcases these groups with ethnic food booths, cultural pavilions, performance stages, a night market, and so much more. At the end of each evening, a 22 minute pyromusical from one of the four international fireworks teams light up the night sky.

For the sixth year, both the GlobalFest OneWorld and Trico Homes International Fireworks Festivals will take place at the same location, Elliston Park in East Calgary (main gate at the corner of 17th [International] Avenue and 60th Street SE).

Elliston Park is open from 6:00 to 11:30 pm on the following evenings:

China: Thursday, August 20
Philippines: Saturday, August 22
Spain: Tuesday, August 25
USA: Thursday, August 27
Finale (Canada): Saturday, August 29

Please note: there is no entry after 9:15pm.

GlobalFest also hosts an annual Human Rights Forum, August 17 to 21. Details here.
